On the upside, she's getting great grades in her photography class. You know, every artist gets to a point in her training when the tools she is using are no longer good enough. When Leah was 16, her orchestra director told us very bluntly that her then-current violin was holding her back. That cost us a few thousand. I guess $200 for a lens isn't so bad. Good thing I love her so much.
